    The teachers at Fairview are incredible. Teachers should always have a "passion" for teaching and that passion is extremely visable with the teaching staff at Fairview Elementary. With such a transient student population and the challenges these kids face teachers at Fairview are much more than just teachers. The kids learn and know that these people care not only about their grades but about them personally. Sometimes that makes all the difference in the world!

    Fairview has always been a school with very committed teachers now in a new building they will be able to carry out may of the curriculum ideas that space had previously limited. It is a building that will hopefully inspire children and families.

    During a tough period of transition Fairview was there to support me and my daughter and I really appreciated the support.

    I work in the local community and have had the pleasure of helping the staff and children at Fairview over the past few months. The teachers adminstration and support staff are truly dedicated to educating and caring for the children. Unfortunately many of these students are in extremely disdavantaged circumstances. I have seen the patience understanding and desire to really help these children by everyone at the school. This school deserves to win!

    I love Fairview School because Fairview School has a great Head Start program located in their Elem. School and that will help prepare those younger children for their Elem. School success. The Head Start teachers/aides are just great with the kids. Thank you to Stacey Jean Marie Justine and Shakey for doing a FABULOUS job and thank you to Fairview Elem. School for seeing how important Head Start is!

    This school serves a majority of under privileged children and is doing an excellent job. It needs and deserves more funding to help even more children!

    Many under privileged children attend Fairview school. The students at Fairview Elementary School need a hand up to escape a life of poverty

    Fairview has adopted an innovative approach to our children's education. They are creating well rounded children who at the end of their education will know more then just the required proficiency tests.
